The pizza is not good. That is important to say. And it is expensive. The antipasti likewise. Overall, the experience was bad as the waiter ignored me from the very beginning. And for god sake, change the music!!!! I was there for an hour, and the same terrible song played over and over on a loop.

Experience wasn't bad but it was only ok. I expected better food based on reviews. Maybe I have high expectations based on my restaurant experiences at other Italian restaurants in Italy. We were just coming from Venice where we had excellent food and pizza. This restaurant had a pleasant outdoor seating area on a narrow street off Via del Corso... More

I had the chance to enjoy a lovely masterpiece of local food (tonnarelli cacio e pepe) and have to say the food was great and also the service reasonable fast and very polite. The spot is pretty informal and elegant as well with relaxing lounge music in the air. The restaurant belongs to the Group Valadier managing the near Hotel

This restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel, so we ended up eating there for a couple of lunches and dinners. We tried the pizza, a variety of pastas and some antipasti including bruschetta and the buffalo mozzarella with prosciutto. The food, while not the best we had in Rome, is quite good. They have a nice variety... More

Had some unusual dishes such as stuffed spicy peppers, liked the decor and atmosphere, but thought it was a bit pricey for what we had
